Fix "open containing folder" not opening with the file manager

  • open as root /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache
  • edit the line that starts with inode/directory= and add the name of the file manager that you use if it is not there already;

    if that is already there but another program is listed there first, try by putting the file manager first (if you need the other program(s) to open folders);

    if the above doesn't work, remove the program that the browser/downloader opens instead of the file manager

     if the above doesn't work, keep only the file manager
